Anyone driving modified (6.5 or 7.5) and have done some testing between Shorty and Saddlepacks?

I use saddle now, but I always have the feeling that the car is too heavy. I'm thinking of getting at least a shorty to try, but before investment I would like to have some thoughts and opinions from you guys if it's worth the extra cost. Thanks.

ignore every thing you have read and simply try it. borrow a pack from a buddy. You lose 6 minutes of your life if you don't like it.

From what I have tested, a shorty pack works best on a smooth track and if its really bumpy the saddle pack works best.

agree with both bob and suby.. the heavier bigger battery settles the car down some, but everyone has their own idea of what they like.. so try and borrow one and see.

me? for mod I like the bigger battery. depending on tracks I will either run a 7.5 , 10.5 , 13.5 depending on size and conditions.. I feel it just settles the car a little and can carry more speed in and thru the corners.. everywhere else feels much the same.

for stock I like the shorty's... unless the track is really loose then will go to square.

You have all that power and it still feels heavy?

So let me guess Hara does not know how to set up car. Most fast guys know set up. I do not want to make a blanket set up that says slow guys dont.

I think driving ability can mask/make up for setup/build issues.

its always been that way, if your car is drivable at all, you can switch cars with most of the drivers that out run you, and they will usually still be able to beat you.......

Absolutely agree, but if you do try the switch I would be mindful of springs and oil weights. I just made the move from stock to mod and have tested both ways. The saddles calm down the car enough for me to be more consistent. With the shorty action and reaction is just too fast for me right now. On our track, the best drivers are running shorties.
